    App that syncs data between Andriod and PC


    I donno if this is the right forum to ask programming questions. There's no Android section on the board, so I decided to put it in here.

    I want to create an android app that can be used to input data, and it should update that data on a remote server. The data also should sync with a PC App version -- somewhat like Viber. As you know, you can chat on Viber, and the data is synced with the PC version of the app.

    I have created an Android game before with Unity but haven't built any android apps, and have little knowledge of networking software. Usually I build standalone C# PC software.

    So, I wanna ask,
    * What IDE I need to create the android app.
    * Coz I wanna sync it with the PC App, with what I have to build the PC app.
    * Some information of how to send data over the internet via the Android app.

    Thanks for any input!

    There are lots of IDEs that can be used to create Android apps. Visual Studio, Eclipse, and Android Studio are but a few. Any of them will allow you to achieve your goal.

    My recommendation would be to have a restful HTTP(S)/JSON service somewhere, that will do the synchronization. If your desktop app is C#, I highly recommend the RestSharp package, available from NuGet, in Visual Studio. You can probably also use it in Android, if you use Xamarin to develop the mobile app, although I haven't verified that.
    What can this strange device be?
    When I touch it, it gives forth a sound
    It's got wires that vibrate and give music
    What can this thing be that I found?
